Welcome! Join us for a journey throughout Malmö, where this stop and enter is Rosengård station. We invite you to this action-shop, a human-centered design process and a testbed functioning as a knowledge based platform, aiming to engage, capture ideas, and hear the wishes of the visitors and citizens of Malmö: “My dream-station for public-transport is this!” At the Opportunity Space Festival, we co-design a commonality of ideas of the world’s coolest public transport station.
We explore elements we would love to see in Rosengård station. The station used as a starting point for people to meet each other and explore around a shared task of challenge. Facilitating discussions and ideas about what makes people interact with each other positively in the public physical urban space. At the location, which is also a station, where people get off/on from their own journey and have an opportunity to meet and interact with people – with different backgrounds, conditions and socio-economic status. What is it that would spark us to look forward to get off/on from the Continental Railway at this specific stop: Rosengård station? How does that physical space look? A station used as a starting point for discussions and ideas about what makes people interact with each other in the public physical urban space. What contributes to a positive shared experience? What is it that attracts people? What do we want to see and meet there?
ISU action-shop – Malmö Rosengård station – a testbed. Focusing on WHAT, ideating, capturing engagement and prototyping more sustainable solutions for our cities in action with citizens. Linked to one of the three different themes of Opportunity Space Festival: The Inclusive City: to explore how design can help create more socially and economically inclusive cities.
Malmö Rosengård station
Malmö Rosengård station officially opens in December 2018 as one of the stations of the upcoming Kontinentalbanan. Please note, the ISU action-shop is a compliment to the other on-going processes around Rosengård station, which are driven by Malmö City. ISU do not hold any mandate on regards to the future shape of Rosengård station, thus this is a playful way to open up for others to contribute and share ideas. We hope to inspire and will be generous with sharing the results.

Design-team and process
The collaboration between ISU – Institute of sustainable urban development, True Story Studio, Altitude Meetings and inUse is an ongoing process of where we look into the Engagement’s ability to create and transform change in the physical space. The first seed planted at ISU Breakfast seminar April 19th, which gave us insights to bring forward to: Future City Testbeds – Malmö stads workshop – at the Bridge August 22, which will focus on WHY and HOW, providing a method for how to design culture and services together with citizens. This testbed at the OPPORTUNITY SPACE FESTIVAL – focusing on WHAT – as an action-shop – following up on previous work. Our shared work during the year of 2017 will be wrapped up at ISU Knowledge Seminar, December 1st.
All is welcome to participate. Come as you are. Contribute as you like.

Amiralsstaden is an urban development process where physical planning meets social challenges. The investment is territorial and based on the geographical area Amiralsgatan/Kontinentalbanan, where Rosengård station is planned. The work aims at innovation in several areas that require new approaches and practices. The overall aim is to increase the environmental, social and economic sustainability through physical upgrading, new housing and new activities, with broad participation and co-creation. Amiralsstaden will be a stationary neighborhood that offers good living environments for both children and adults.
The overall goal is that Amiralsstaden will:
- be at the social and environmental front
- contribute to a powerful densification of housing with reasonable rates
- Rents and a wider range of housing types
- contribute to increased employment
- contribute to more equal health
- bridging physical, mental and social barriers
- Strengthen existing patches to more interconnecting and attractive links
- be a pilot area for municipal intrapreneurs
